FreeBSD : cups-filters -- buffer overflow in texttopdf size allocation (b19da422-1e02-11e5-b43d-002590263bf5)
High Nessus Plugin ID 84484
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionStefan Cornelius from Red Hat reports :
A heap-based buffer overflow was discovered in the way the texttopdf utility of cups-filters processed print jobs with a specially crafted line size. An attacker being able to submit print jobs could exploit this flaw to crash texttopdf or, possibly, execute arbitrary code.
Till Kamppeter reports :
texttopdf: Fixed buffer overflow on size allocation of texttopdf when working with extremely small line sizes, which causes the size calculation to result in 0 (CVE-2015-3258, thanks to Stefan Cornelius from Red Hat for the patch).
SolutionUpdate the affected package.
